Hurricane season may be over by a meteorologist’s standards, but the season for “Hurricane Love” billows on.
Dutch house DJ/producer Jasper Dietze (Spinnin’ Records) has added a twinkly, upbeat twist to the feelsy vibes and stormy, relationship-focused lyrics of L.A WOMEN’s original track. And the result, released this week via Lowly Palace, demonstrates the beauty and art of the genre-crossing remix.
“When I first heard L.A WOMEN’s original version of ‘Hurricane Love,’ I immediately knew that this was something special.” Jasper Dietze, DJ/producer
“When I first heard L.A WOMEN’s original version of ‘Hurricane Love,’ I immediately knew that this was something special,” said Dietze. “I really loved the lyrics and the smooth feel of the vocal, so it was a real pleasure putting my own spin on it.”
The trio of New Zealanders behind L.A WOMEN first made waves with their self-released debut “Hurricane Love” last summer. The alt-pop track has since garnered more than 4 million streams and an MTV music video, effectively establishing L.A WOMEN worldwide.
With Dietze’s thoughtful, beat-driven adaptation, this soulful and melodic track could reach new welcoming ears in clubs and underground house parties the world over.
“Jasper’s remix took the song into a realm that we hadn’t thought of creatively,” said L.A WOMEN. “His interpretation of the track stepped into the electronic scene without taking away the essence of the song. We love the direction Jasper went with!”
